including roy blunt, tom coburn, susan collins, bob porker, lindsey graham, and rob portman. he'll also dine tonight with 11 republican senators at the jefferson hotel and will travel to capitol hill next week to meet with caucuses in both the house and the senate. so far, the good will is being reciprocated. according to senator lindsey graham, what i see from the president is probably the most encouraging engagement on a big issue since the early days of his presidency. senator majority leader mitch mcconnell is all for daytont. >> frankly, i wish he'd done more of that over the years. we've had, all of us, very limited interaction with the president. he's certainly doesn't have to go through me to call on my members, and i'm sure he will, and i encourage him to do so. >> of course, necessity is usually the grandmother of change. despite several weeks of bully pulpit pressure, even the president acknowledged that his hands are tied unless congress decides to cooperate. >> this idea that somehow there's a secret formula or secret sauce to get speaker boehner or mitch mcconnell to say, you k
from killing each other. on thursday mccain and lindsey graham, as you know, skewered mr. paul, particularly his filibuster. so who wins this rare old tussle? is it the old guard or the new guard? >> it is an interesting establishment gop versus this tea party gop -- >> who wins? >> you know, i think rand paul within the conservative bubble comes out looking better. now, obviously to you and me we listen to it and graham and mccain are making more sense. rand paul is fighting a good fight against a problem that does not exist, a wild hypothetical that has not happened, perhaps never will happen. part of the gop's program of like real solutions for fake problems. americans in restaurants can rest assured that they will not be droned. >> i hope jane fonda knows that. >> especially if they're not combatants against america. so they can be comfortable tonight and into the future. but like rand paul 2016 is actually looking better. is he going to win the nomination? probably not. is he going to be president? certainly not. but he can be a player in 2016 and doing that thing we've se
bad for the u.s. military and for na reason they were opposed to the sequestration. senator lindsey graham says the party of ronald reagan would never let this happen and john mccain says the cuts are unconscionable. >> we've got to stop spending and whatever it takes to start that process and we can come back and fix it. >> john: you want to fix it going on. >> that's right. >> john: are you comfortable this week knowing that this sequestration will occur? >> we've got to let it occur, yes. i'm comfortable with that. >> john: that day, with the sequester still two days away, homeland security officials announce they have released illegal immigrants from arizona detention facilities. are they releasing illegal aliens now? >> the white house supposedly didn't know about it-- >> wednesday the president invites congressional leaders to a last minute meeting on friday, the day the sequester hits. >> he hopes that they will have a constructive discussion about doing something to prevent sequestration. >> john: some republicans are suspicious. >> here we are 11th hour once again, the last
it together lindsey graham september osent ought a tweet today, he said hope it serves as the beginning of a new paradigm where people in elected office actually talk to each other about meaningful issues. one of the senators who i spoke with said that what struck him was the fact that the president sort of can got to understand better the republicans and the republicans got to understand the president better. and he said that that was even more of a shocker i think to republicans, that the president is actually sincere in where he's coming from. i have a very unsophisticated word to describe this. duh. this is human relationships and it should have been happening for years and years. to understand each other, baseline of that, that has to happen before they can talk across party lines. >> wolf, didn't we have this conversation in 2009 and it had to do with beer and a beer summit and it was sitting down as regular people just like the picture shows you, trying to get over an impasse by just sitting down to either a good meal or a good beer? >> once you establish sort of direct human con
party, hawkish like mccain and lindsey graham, are putting down rand paul because he isn't one of them and he dared to question the use of u.s. military power in this case against individual citizens. where are you, a man of the left, on this one? >> well, on the subject of drones, and this is a very interesting thing to watch this divide among the republicans whereas you say the establishment, which is reflexively pro-military on the republican side, is running up against the new tea party republicans who aren't so reflexively pro-military who are ideologically libertarian and see threats to civil liberties where some progressive lefties might also. i, too, am troubled like rand paul -- like a stopped clock occasionally he's right, and on the use of drones -- >> i used that phrase yesterday. did you watch last night because i said a broken clock is right twice a day. >> i didn't see that. great minds think alike. >> it's yours, too. let me go to cynthia -- if you want to finish that thought, go ahead. rand paul can be pretty wacky. he's talking about the united states government hitti
, the wall street journal, 2nd editorial this morning. senator lindsey graham, this is from wednesday's hearing with a trade general eric holder. [video clip] >> we have been talking about this ever since you live at this job. >> during confirmation. >> absolutely. i want to congratulate you and the president. he has fought long and hard about how to send the homeland in very difficult circumstances. i applaud your efforts in the drug program. i think it has really helped us in afghanistan and pakistan. i just believe it is a tactical tool that this president should be using and i think he is using it responsibly. host: george in baton rouge, louisiana, a democrat. the use of domestic drones. caller: this is what i have to say, a trader for is not a citizen -- traitor. i served in the navy un john keynes's father johnwho the skipper of the ship by was on. whenever you hear filibuster, you can reset the congressional record and you will find the from mississippi including long and others. you can find that in your congressional record for over 100 years. you can rest assured that when
cain, his southern bell lindsey graham oh my god! i made a pie. okay. i just decided he's aunt bee, i don't know why. he is part of a bipartisan group of senator -- >> there he is standing right behind him. he's -- >> he's always right behind john mccain. >> really? interesting? >> stephanie: got his back -- >> i would have thought it would have been the other way around. >> stephanie: stop it. >> what? >> stephanie: they introduced legislation intended to address mental illness. he said his concern about such a proposal stems from difficulty in determining what qualifies as a private sale. what is a private sale? if i buy a shotgun from mark whoever, or if i give one to a family member, i'm not going to put that in to the federal % system, that's just not practical. that probably happens all the time because he is so manly. >> mercy. >> stephanie: michigan still hates governor rick snyder. the newest michigan poll finding rick snyder's numbers not recovering. 37% of the voters approve of the job he is doing. 54% disapproval.

a lot from lindsey graham, but the three of you -- [laughter] i'm curious where you guys are on the various rules that are out there. >> well, from a standpoint i'm not a judiciary committee so i won't have a chance to make it to the process. i'll look at as we come through. we had to enforce the law on the books. you kind of take that general approach and start getting into areas like straw purchases, things like that that are argued they are, but may not be working well right now. i am like senator graham. i look forward to seeing that the judiciary committee comes up with. i hope would be bipartisan whatever it is. i party saddam opposed to senator feinstein assault weapons ban. nevertheless, we'll look at things as presented. right now from a standpoint because i'm on the committee, it's relatively early in the process because they have a process in the committee and your senators working hard to get some enter the committee. once that happens will look at it.

suck s successfully convicted. >> listen to senator lindsey graham. he himself is an attorney. he's very much opposed to the decision to send him to new york. he thought this was an enemy combatant who belonged in guantanamo bay before a military tribunal. listen to senator graham. >> to the administration, why did you not send this person to guantanamo bay to be held as an enemy combatant for intelligence-gathering purposes? i have been firm against torture but i do believe that guantanamo bay is a secure military facility that provides this country a great asset and we've received a lot of information from guantanamo bay detainees. >> as you remember, the uproar a few years ago when they were thinking of sending sheikh mohammed to be tried before a civil court in new york. that eventually was reversed. what do you think about the pros and cons legally speaking? >> well, it is true that there is a major difference between the two in terms of interrogation. in a criminal court where he is now, he will receive a lawyer who will undoubted he will say, stop talking to prosecutors. do
at the pentagon budget. as lindsey graham's saying, ronald reagan's rolling over in his grave. and john mccain's quoting chairman mao about just how bleak it looks. if you actually look at the numbers s numbers, there's not a single cut. spending goes up for the pentagon every single year, even under the sequester. >> that's right. and this needs to be translated outside of the beltway because when people in washington talk about cuts, they're talking about a reduction and an increase in spending. that is washingtonspeak for a cut. but what's so remarkable to me is that the sequester was not a storm on the horizon. it wasn't like hurricane sandy and everyone had to, you know, take bottled water into the bathtub and whatnot. this was something that they created. this was initiated by the white house. this was a backup plan created by the very same politicians who are now railing against their own backup plan. the other point that you have made is that the cuts in and of themselves are so minuscule, what everyone i think is having heart attack and heartburn over is that they were so inartfu
